Trinity Energy, which has been operating in South Sudan for the past twelve years, is planning to construct and commission fuel storage facilities in strategic locations throughout the country, in order to cater to South Sudan’s seven to eight million liters per month fuel requirements.
The company aims to build a large-scale refinery, hoping to be commissioned in the last quarter of 2022. In the first phases, the unit will be built to process 40,000 barrels per day of tar fuel. Further investment will upgrade the facility to 80,000 barrels per day with a long-term goal of a 200,000 barrels per day processing capacity. Fifteen percent of the production will be exported to East Africa’s largest market, Ethiopia.
Further, plans include an increase in the number of retail stations from 15 stations currently to 25 by the end of the year. Across the regions, Trinity is looking to build 100 stations in five neighboring countries: Ethiopia; Central African Republic; the Democratic Republic of the Congo; Uganda; Kenya.
Finally, the company is planning to build 33 storage depots in the country, including a large-scale one close to the capital city of Juba.
Trinity Energy Limited has a strong presence in the country and sells its petroleum products to retailers across the country. Customers include Private Companies, NGOs, UN Organizations, Government institutions.
